Mexico Championship 2018: Shubhankar Sharma Holds Lead After Round 3

He could also drastically change the narrative, from who is Shubhankar Sharma to what will he do next? So far, he has won twice on the European Tour since December, and he leads the Race to Dubai rankings with earnings close to €750,000 (Rs6 crore approximately).

― Reuters picMEXICO CITY, March 4 ― Phil Mickelson dismissed Shubhankar Sharma as a member of the media at the WGC-Mexico Championship yesterday, but the veteran American will not mistake the Indian when they play together in the final threesome today. He said "hi". I said "hi". "I think it just pushes guys like me to play even better", Sharma said. Even though I missed the cuts, I knew I was playing well. He's like 21, right?

World No. 40 Kiradech Aphibarnrat styled a career-tying-best 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of the WGC-Mexico Championship to finish up on 13-under 271, up six places on the live leaderboard to T5, three shy of clubhouse leader Justin Thomas, who shot 64.

Mickelson's not likely to forget Sharma in a hurry, now that he's played in the same threesome in the final round. "Relatively new", Rafa Cabrera Bello told Golf Channel. When you get out of position you have to try to salvage par and that's what I did. He didn't have a European Tour card. At home, his mother kept the discipline that helped Sharma focus. With so much at stake where a victory over the games top stars will be worth United States dollars 1.7 million in prize money, an exemption onto the PGA TOUR through the 2020-21 season, 550 FedExCup points and starts in nearly every major championship including THE PLAYERS Championship this season, the talented Indian is looking forward to the final round. A victory at the WGC Championship would make Sharma the first debutant to win on the PGA Tour in about three decades. Something a player from India has never done. "You know that good feeling is on the other side".

"Having that chance is what we play for", he said. In 2016, Sharma continued to have success, finishing third at the Bashundhara Bangladesh Open and fourth at the Resorts World Manila Masters. Lefty will be looking for his first win in nearly five years. He added, "I made a few mistakes on the greens but the greens are tough this week so I think everyone's making a few mistakes".

"That would put too much pressure on me.I just want to go ahead and enjoy myself".

His dad is a former Colonel in the Indian Army.

Sharma, the only two-time victor on the European Tour this year who leads the Race to Dubai, didn't blink. In fact, Tusha was the doctor who delivered Sharma's younger sister. Mohan Lal has very high hopes for his son.
